Supporting Our Community

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to La Petite Academy daycare and preschool in Gold River, CA. We offer programs for Infant and Toddler, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and School-Aged children. My name is Michelle and I am the School Director. I have been working in the early childhood education field for over a decade and started with the company as a teacher before becoming the school director.

Our school is filled with highly-qualified, passionate and dedicated teachers whose love for teaching and learning are evident in every part of the school day. From circle time to outdoor exploration to building lasting friendships, children who join our family are confident and ready to tackle the world!

We take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment. We have coded entry doors and staff certified in CPR as well as first aid. Regular wellness checks are conducted throughout the day. We've strengthened our already rigorous cleanliness and hygiene practices (including more frequent, longer hand washing; cleaning and sanitizing surfaces and items in classrooms). We employ these measures to ensure your child can learn in the best environment possible. And so that you can have peace of mind while we're taking care of them.

Being apart from your child can be a challenge. That's why we're excited to provide ways for you to stay connected throughout the day, every day, when they're at school. Our brightwheel mobile app allows you see photos and videos of your child learning in addition to receiving learning updates from your child’s teacher. We also offer the WatchMeGrow program. WatchMeGrow gives families the opportunity to view their child's activities in their classroom in real time through secured access on your computer, phone, or tablet. Never miss a moment away from your child again.

Plus, this fall we are offering The Prep Lab. This program supports school-age students and their families as they face any challenges and changes in their local school district this upcoming school year, with flexible scheduling and even a full-day option. Our teachers have been trained to support local school district distance learning so children stay on course with their studies.

Schedule your tour today and we look forward to meeting you at La Petite Academy in Gold River, CA.

Here's what people have to say

4.88 out of 5 stars
This school has been a safe nurturing place for both of my children. The staff greet me by name and go out of their way to keep me updated.
Really solid all around, kids like it and I know they are developing as they should!
We absolutely love this school! Our son has a group of friends that started with him in the infant area and has continued on. The curriculum is wonderful and is only adding to by son's knowledge and social skills. Would recommend this school to anyone!
The staff is amazing and we are very happy with the curriculum. We feel safe at the school and our child is really happy there. He is thriving beyond our expectations!
Teachers are always so nice and informative of my child, they keep me in the loop of their daily interactions and make sure to address any concerns I have, or any they. They make me feel feel very comfortable leaving my child there.
I have found the Science-Technology-Engineering-Math (STEM) program to be good. In addition, there are very few schools offering a STEM curriculum. Finally, the safety at this school is better that almost all schools we visited.
All staff friendly, courteous, professional, attentive and very helpful. Everyone always is happy & smiling at this school. Staff attend to all children’s individual needs. We are extremely happy to have our child attend the 3-4 year preschool class here.
The teachers and director at La Petite Academy have been amazing! Leaving my baby with them was tough at first but they have made the transition into daycare so easy! My son and us as parents love La Petite! I'd recommend this school to all!
